Student election to Council

Students are encouraged to become a member of the University Council as this is an excellent opportunity to be involved in the decision making process of the University.


Council is the governing body accountable to the Government for the strategic direction and superintendence of the University. It is responsible for ensuring the systems and processes to direct and control the university's operations are established and working effectively. In addition, Council fosters a culture which allows the university to deliver to all of its stakeholders outcomes in line with its mission and strategic goals.

Council has members from within and external to the University and members must act in the interest of the whole University rather than that of their constituencies. This is an excellent opportunity for students to be involved in the decision making process of the University.
